No Lights, No Lycra craze to hit Horsham
No Lights No Lycra, a global dance craze started in Melbourne in 2009 by unruly dance students, has found a home in Horsham.
In collaboration with the ‘This Girl Can’ Vic Health campaign, Wimmera Health Care Group and Horsham Aquatic Centre have partnered to bring the dance craze to the city.
Wimmera Health Care Group community health nurse Nicole Miller said No Lights No Lycra was a fully inclusive and non-judgmental space, with no lights, no lycra, no teacher, no steps to learn and no technique, just free movement.
“It’s set up as a space where you can completely let go, shake out the stresses of the week and lose yourself in the music, just like dancing in your own lounge room at home,” she said.
No Lights No Lycra runs dance nights throughout Australia and the world and is described as a daggy, non-pretentious place to completely be yourself. “It doesn’t matter if you are new to dancing and exercise or a gym regular,” Mrs Miller said.
“All that matters is that you are giving it a go. Come and try something new. Bring a friend, work colleague, a neighbour, your daughter, sister, or your mum.”
No Lights No Lycra is on Thursdays from 7.10pm, starting on June 21 at Horsham Aquatic Centre. Entry is free.
